I know you're trying to copy other developers like Blizzard with the battle.net launcher, but why don't you make this garbage POS app optional?

 

Tried to update WoT, can't connect to service

 

Tried to update WoWS, can't connect to update service

 

Uninstalled WGC

 

Tried to launch WoT, this application needs WGC

 

Tried to launch WoWS, this application needs WGC

 

Downloaded and installed WGC again

 

Tried to update WoT and WoWS, can't connect to update service, app craps all over my PC and crashes it

 

Restart PC

 

WGC auto launches, craps all over PC AGAIN

 

Turn off auto launch

 

Restart PC

 

Uninstall WGC

 

Waiting

 

I don't know what in the hell you guys are thinking with this garbage app, but clearly a good amount of the community has a problem with it, IT DOESN'T WORK!

 

So now I've got a years worth of premium time just pissing away because I can't get anything to update, launch, or work without this garbage app, and will you reimburse me for any of it?? NOPE, you'll say it's some fault on my end, which clearly it's not, and tell me you can't do anything for me. That's just how WG rolls, like a bad case of the clap.

 

Here are my stats from noobmeter regarding my last battle.

July 18th is the last time I was able to play. Over 12 days of trying to figure out how to get these games to work and not having the WGC work. 12 days of missed premium time that I won't get back because of your asinine app. Money out of my pocket that I won't get back because of your garbage app.

WGC infects the two like virus making them unable to run once it is gone so the proper way is to uninstalling the games first. Then uninstall the wgc. Open up task manager on windows and turn off all wgc processes except the uninstall program and then reinstall the game of your choice.

  1. uninstall all Wargaming games before uninstalling Wgc
  2. click uninstall for the wgc next
  3. open task manager or the mac equivalent 
  4. turn off all processes except the uninstall program
  5. then click uninstall on the open wgc window
  6. reinstall the game of your choice (world of warplanes excluded)

Going to the world of warplanes site will only redownload the WGC. the WGC infects the games forcing you to go through all of these steps to get rid of it. DO NOT INSTALL THE WGC PERIOD HIGH LAG WHEN YOU DO AND INTERNET CRASHES

I'm almost at the point of just reinstalling WoT and WoWS.

 

Sadly I am on a 5mbps wireless connection, lucky if it sees 50kb/s on a good day. Downloading the 30GB or so of date for both games will take me the better part of a week even running day and night.

 

I know that's not WGs problem, but it would be nice if they did some sort of hot fix to remove the need for that trash launcher to run in the first place.

You can't. I just spent 15 minutes trying to install World of Warships without the WG Game Center, couldn't figure out how. The only suggestions people offer is installing everything, then only click the launcher in the folder. Sorry, that is not going to work.

 

I understand what War Gaming wants to do with the Game Center, it wasn't needed and most users certainly don't want it. Looking at the last batch of bug updates just makes it worse from a useability and a security standpoint.

Landed killer...not sure about your instruction process.  My SSD crapped out, got a new one and doing a fresh install of WOT/WOWS, WOWS i was able to find the link to their non-WGC installer and it's working fine, haven't found it for WOT. 

 

So to say 'reinstall the game of your choice' when I cannot find the direct installer which isn't linked to WGC is unhelpful...if you have the link to WOT without WGC please share!

This should let you, and anyone else, download the old installer/launcher: https://redirect.war..._web_install_na

Sorry to hear you're experiencing these issues, have you tried adding WGC to firewall exceptions?  If you are still experiencing problems please submit a ticket to our Technical Support team here: https://na.wargaming...support/tickets

I just reviewed your ticket - looks like we were waiting on you to try a few different fixes and get back to us.  We would be happy to re-open the ticket and continue working to resolve the issue with you.  Even if it is broken, we can take what we learn, file a bug report, and get the issue resolved in a future version.

Have not installed WGC.

So what I understand here is that:

A. Once you install WGC you cannot launch the games directly via their exe files anymore?

B. If you have a problem with WGC you need to uninstall the games, then uninstall WGC, then reinstall the version of the games that come without WGC?

1) You can still direct launch from the exe.

2) I haven't experienced any technical issues with it that would require reinstalling.

It is trash, causes issues, but more importantly, is as mentioned, if you have WOT or WoWS installed, then uninstall WGC, you cannot uninstall either game, because for some reason WG decided that the launcher had to take over that function of the game, therefore you wind up having to reinstall WGC just to uninstall either game. this really sucks if you decide you just need a clean install of one of the games.

After having these and other issues, along with there being no real point to having WGC, I got rid of it from my system, reinstalled WOT, and will NEVER use it again. I strongly reccoment against using it, as it really serves no purpose other than to take over the instalation/uninstall process.

I have it installed and also have no issues. Can launch Tanks and Boat from their exe files as well. Sounds like a few people are having issues so eveyone seems to think there are issues.
